Cargo Bridge Game Tips for Optimality - Levels 7 to 12

This is the continuation of the Walkthgough, Game Guide and Game Tips for the Cargo Bridge Flash game. The first part of this Game Guide can be found here:

The Suspension Bridge

Nowhere in the game levels have I yet found a place to build a proper suspended bridge. Not even a cable-stayed. Nowhere but the chalenge. check out this beautiful 25m all-wood bridge!

Levels 7 to 12

In this new section we will need some more knowledge about building bridges. This time from Please check it out to find out about cantilever spans, types of trusses, and other advanced patterns (which will be impossible to replicate in the game but are interesting however).

And don't forget that here is the link to PLAY the original GAME - full screen!

Level 7 - at 45º

Don't feel the inclination. In fact, it will make things easier because the cargo never really places all of it's weight on the bridge. If your bridge is straight enough (or even better slightly convex) and it supports itself, it should work. So we could do an extended truss bridge like this: cover the 13m at 45% span with $730 bucks. But then again a more optimal solution would resemble something like this:

This bridge was $614. It is some sort of arch with extra support from a small web on the upper extreme (sorry about the distorted image).

Note: From here on I havn't got the time to explain each solution so I'm just uploading the images in the meantime.

Level 8: Tricky, very tricky

20.1 meters





Level 9 - Lame



Level 10 - Finally something cool

Both for $1521

Level 11 - Not so Mean



Level 12 - Weirdo

sqlalchemy ProgrammingError can't adapt type numpy.float64 - Python troubleshooting

Are you getting a

sqlalchemy.exc.ProgrammingError: (ProgrammingError) can't adapt type 'numpy.float64'

It's because psycopg (psycopg2) - which is used inherently by SQL Alchemy but if you're just dealing directly with alchemy you might not know this - has no idea how to make the numpy.core.numerictypes.float64 (complete type path: another thing they don't tell you) a string for SQL querying.

Simple solution, add:

# solution by Jorge Orpinel found at rehalcon.blogspotcom
import numpy
from psycopg2.extensions import register_adapter, AsIs
def addapt_numpy_float64(numpy_float64):
return AsIs(numpy_float64)
register_adapter(numpy.float64, addapt_numpy_float64)
somewhere in the program.

Dockerize your Django App (for local development on macOS)

I'm writing this guide on how to containerize an existing (simple) Python Django App into Docker for local development since this is how I learned to to develop with Docker, seeing that the existing django images and guides seem to focus on new projects.

For more complete (production-level) stack guides you can refer to Real Python's Django Development with Docker Compose and Machine or transposedmessenger's Deploying Cookiecutter-Django with Docker-Compose.

Pre-requisitesAn existing Django app which you can run locally (directly or in Virtualenv). We will run the local dev server with runserver.A requirements.txt file with the app dependencies, as is standard for Python projects; including MySQL-python.Working local MySQL server and existing database. (This guide could easily be adapted for other SQL engines such as Postgres.)Install Docker. You can see Docker as a virtual machine running Linux on top of your OS ("the host"), which in turn can run con…

Mapa del Metrobus de la Ciudad de México

Update: Por fin el Gobierno hizo su chamba luego de años de que mi mapa fuera el único en Google Maps. Hoy (05-11-2013) me percaté que en (solo con "www"...) se puede apreciar ya este mapa (zoom centrado en centro de la ciudad):

Ver Plano de Sistema de Corredores de Transporte Público de Pasajeros del D.F., Metrobús en un mapa ampliado

Para quien prefiera los iconos que yo utilicé, aquí dejo la última versión que actualicé (hasta línea 4 y proyecto de línea 5): En mi post "Mapa del Metrobus en Google Maps" publiqué el mapa del metrobus en Abril dl 2009. Ahora que hay más estaciones y más líneas, es necsaria esta actualización.
Incluye íneas 1 a 4 (actual a Junio 13 del 2012). La descripción de cada estación incluye correspondencias con otras líneas de MB y con el meto.
Además quiciera es incluir el ten ligero, las rutas/paradas del turibus, y algunas rutas de RTP - y tal vez el ten suburbano.
